Thanks gibbo.

John senior and wife still alive in 1905.

I can't see the marriage in NSW of Robert Matthews to Elizabeth Jones.

There are other births before William S that might fit - Mary 1856, Vince H 1856, Clara A 1859 and Blanche A 1863.

Three marriages in NSW before 1856 but none are RC.

Thanks gibbo.

Hard to know at the moment if all the children from 1856 fit.

Have to go back to 1840 for an RC marriage.

No marriage in NSW index with Elizabeth Reid.

Re what gibbo?

The baptisms may have been 'forced' on the family if no RC priest in the area so CofE.

The 1882 death for Elizabeth may not be correct but I can't find a matching burial for a different year.
